about

The iris is the darkest spot of the eye and the eyes are the mirror of the soul. Hence, Jalocins album reflects a sometimes dark, melancholic mood (in a way, the “ah!” and “oh!” of the emotion communicated via esthetic sound events: music). Acoustic claps and analog kicks as well as mood complementing effects such as delay and reverb, are key elements throughout the entire album. The song titles are chosen conveniently but from foreign languages, therefore strange to the ear and without associations but still existing.

The Arts being the expression of the artist’s state of mind, Jalocin, rather than serving a specific purpose, genre or audience, attempts to communicate a more impulsive and authentic content. Although sometimes minimalistic in nature, melody and rhythm play an important role in his music. A special interest lies in the organic arrangement of analog sound events inspired by nature to complement the beat. The contrast and balance of electronic and natural / organic elements is also a key aspect Jalocin is inspired by.
